. florida and washington dc, president obama and governor romney faced each other in the third and final debate. many saw this as the defining moment for each of the candidate before americans make their decision on election day november 6th, next two weeks will be devoted to mobilizing voters in key battleground states, ohio in particular shaping up to be an election decider, although as cbs news poll this morning showed the president maintains an advantage there, governor romney is gaining, tonight in boca raton, florida the focus was on foreign policy, both candidate also pressed on their domestic policy talking points. >> governor romney i am glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat, because a few month ago when asked was is the biggest geo political face facing america you said russia. >> russia indicated is a geo political foe. >> excuse me, as the geo political foe and i said in the same paragraph i said and iran is the greatest national security threat we face. russia does continue to battle us in the u.n. time and time again, i have clear eyes on, this i am not going to
" is following the campaigns grounding it out with 12 days ago. right now president obama on the ground in virginia. within the hour he's in chicago to vote early in his hometown, and earlier while in tampa the president again went after the gop over richard mourdock's remark that pregnancy from rate is, quote, something got intended. >> as we saw again this week, i don't think any politician in washington, most of whom are male, should be making health care decisions for women. >> and mitt romney is campaigning all day in ohio hitting cincinnati this morning and columbus in the next hour. >> our campaign is about big things, because we happen to believe that america faces big challenges. we recognize this is a year with a big choice, and the americans want to see big changes and i'm going to bring it to this country. >> and ohio is exactly where the big number worth watching today is focused. "time" magazine has the president up by five points in the buckeye state. when you look at women voters in ohio, president obama is up by 19 points. in early voting president obama has a 2-1 advan
that works. you think if obama had a foreign policy, they would feel differently. foreign policy is the only thing that matters. even dana perino's barbie house has gun tur rants. when mitt ran the olympics did he declare war on jamaican bobsleders? if it's warmongering to protect the embassy personnel, mitt would say i'm for warmongering. it's awesome. to obama not blaming america is warmongering and blaming that stupid video. either it's a mess or a coverup. what can obama point to as foreign policy success? the things that it hasn't gotten worse? the president with no record to run on knows the negative can't prove it. what is obama afraid to say publicly many election he will say to putin after? obama has been hiding the foreign policy agenda until after the election. anything a middle age man hides from the world this carefully, it can't be good. all right. eric bolling is out in boca raton. how is boca raton? i always wanted to visit mexico. nice >> eric: it's beautiful. in florida, not mexico. a beautiful day. 85 and sunny. we got here, i got here around 11:00 this morning. people fee
national average finds mitt romney now ahead tonight 47.3% to president obama's 47.1%, but keep in mind this is well within that margin of error meaning tonight this race is still locked in a dead heat. we begin in florida. mitt romney agrees to flip a coin for a friendly touch football game between his staff and the traveling press corps. romney's advisors say they expect a strong performance. >> we have to have a strong national security structure, and i think you will see governor romney contrasting that with the economic failures of the last four years. >> in maryland, the president wrapped up his own debate preparation and headed to florida. his advisers say they are confident the president will reach out to women. >> the president has been a strong and steady leader. we have response plea ended the war in iraq. we are going to end the war in afghanistan. alkyd dough is a shadow of its former shelf. >> out to colorado now. vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke to supporters talking about the stakes at risk in this election with a final stop in pueblo this afternoon. >> look,
important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
report." wifeless than two weeks to go, president obama and mitt romney hit the campaign trail in florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, and virginia. polls continue to show the race in a dead heat nationally, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowing into that side. that's romney. we have seen him improve his performance in independents and womens. you can call it what you want and the media contends it isn't momentum but i bet the president's campaign is wishing they that that momentum. >> to that point, yes, the obama campaign wishes it had some of that momentum because i tell you what really going on. the president is flatlining. >> i think he hit a ceiling for two re
and president obama head-to-head on the thing that may decide it all. >> i want more jobs. my priority is jobs, jobs, jobs. >> i want to put people back to work here in thenited states. >> john mccain talks mitt romney momentum and blasts the white house on the benghazi attack. >> you can't assume anything about either a cover-up or colossal incompetence. >> also, obama's favorite debate sparring partner and the man who whipped obama into shape after the disastrous first debate. and battleground america. why women hold the key to this election. plus, when politics becomes personal. the always controversial gloria allred. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. our big story tonight, big changes. that's what mitt romney's promising, just 12 days to go before election day. listen to what he told the crowd a little while ago in perhaps the aptly named defiance, ohio. >> this is a time when america faces big challenges. we have a big election. and we want a president who will
of this mess. >> president obama and mitt romney stare each other down one more time. >> i'm not going to wear rose colored glasses when it comes to russia or mr. putin. >> from from red glasses to red ink, did mitt romney gaughan any red states? or did president obama zing his way to a win? >> so the question is not a game of battleship. >> we go to the scorecards on a special "early start. >>> good morning. welcome to "early start," everyone. >> it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> the debates are done. no more debates. president obama and mitt romney going toe to toe over america's role on the world stage. >> and by most accounts, it was a more forceful president obama who came out on top last night. the majority of analysts and voters agreeing mitt romney was on the defensive for much of this foreign policy face-off. a cnn poll of people who watched this third and final debate shows 48% favored obama with 40% for romney. the president now two for three in the showdowns in the polling. he also won the second debate by seven points after taking a 42-point beating in debate number one. senior congr
, and decided to make his endorsement in the presidential race between barack obama and john mccain that year, colin powell choosing obama for his endorsement was pretty much the last thing in the world the mccain campaign needed to hear. at that point, they were already becoming a really evident long shot. the race was starting to increasingly look like it wasn't even going to be close. and the colin powell endorsement just took the wind out of the mccain campaign's sails. john mccain responded to the endorsement that same day by going on fox news and sighing that, well, it wasn't all that much of a surprise. he at least, though, was able to say even if he did not have colin powell's endorsement, he did have endorsements from some other former republican secretaries of state. so at least he had those names to offer for counterbalance. the romney campaign's counterbalance tonight to them losing the colin powell endorsement this year is a whole different kind of counterbalance. >> you want to call me crazy, go to hell. call me crazy all you want. >> this morning, on cbs, republican former secr
obama has made in afghanistan was announcing the specific date that he would withdraw. he said this president has done an extraordinary thing he announced the date of our withdrawal. that was wrong. mr. romney today just flat out reversing his previous rejection to there being a withdrawal date from afghanistan, as he very tightly hugged president obama on everything from drones to egypt to syria to a number of other matters tonight on which there was less disagreement than we might have expected before the debate. chris matthews? what's your take? >> let me take my favorite role for a minute, my role of critic. you think about the united states. let's talk about our country instead of the middle east and israel that was focused on far too much. let's focus on the united states. nothing about the drug trade coming through latin-america which is the greatest threat to our culture in many ways. the failure of european finance, which is always hanging over us every day. we get new stock market worries about europe, no discussion whatever of europe, latin america of any way. it was
made great advancements from where john mccain was in 2008. but that was a really low bar. so the obama campaign has managed to move >>> disrespecting women, deriding minorities, let's play "hardball." good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, women of america beware. there's a crowd out there that doesn't believe in you. you go through the terror of rape and they question your word, they say you better have that baby or you're going to jail. check the republican platform that came out of tampa, 14th amendment rights to the fertilized human egg. what about the woman's rights you might ask? personhood for the unborn from conception, what about the woman's right to control her personhood. now a close romney ally in indiana put out word he would criminalize abortion even if the woman was raped. it's headed for the white house, people were scoffed when rick santorum pushed the contraception and now republicans are pushing a measure to let bosses deny coverage for birth control simply by saying they don't believe in it. bosses get to decide, all this fro
obama wrapped up a 48-hour, 8-state battleground blitz in cleveland late last night and with a hoarse voice went after a message he's been dealing all week long. romney's trustworthiness. >> trust matters. you know what, ohio, after all these years, you now know me. you know that i mean what i say. >> and almost the exactly same moment 150 mys west mitt romney took the starj in one of the great names in battleground politics, defiance, ohio, and he borrowed a page from the president's 2008 page book calling himself the president of change. >> this is a time when america faces big challenges. we have a big election and we want a president who will actually bring big changes and i will and he won't. >> well, we know ohio has been the ultimate bellwether in presidential elections for the last 50 years and the president's been putting a big emphasis on early voting both here and in other battleground states which is why he decided to be the first president, well, early vote and dit yesterday in chicago. >> we need some i.d. >> oh, no. >> i got my driver's license here. >> yes, by law even
talked to people in the romney campaign and the obama campaign. the romney campaign says hey our candidate distanced himself from richard mourdock. the democrats are saying first of all the ads are still up. >> he's still endorsing that guy. >> secondly the key in several states, chris, are independent women voters and they say in surveys abortion is their number one issue so this is going to play right at those people in colorado, new hampshire, virginia and so forth. >> they're in bed with the far right. >> he's saying he wants bipartisanship and if he's saying he's a moderate, being in bed with richard mourdock doesn't strengthen his argument. >> people on the far right are saying what they want and this guy is in bed with him. the president's spokeswoman said "the president felt those comments were outrageous and demeaning to women." she said he found it perplexing the ads haven't come down. already the democratic national committee has a web video linking romney and mourdock. let's listen to part of that ad. >> this fall i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> even wh
president obama said he slightly there with the detroit lions, but our indicators are unconventional indicators show that if the lions win the election, mitt romney. the san francisco giants wind, obama is favored. we also look at the redskins record, and they will be playing the carolina panthers in the final game, and the redskins are slightly favored. and if they win, the incumbent is likely to win. just so you have that. now, onto our election panel. in today's abc -- excuse me come in tuesday's abc news "washington post" poll, romney and obama were separated by seven hundredths of 1%. i don't think i've ever seen anything that close. we're going to turn to michael first to talk about what he sees the election at this point and then hendry will take a look at ohio, the state we're all watching most closely. and, finally, norval look at the senate, compared with and house races. michael, let's begin. >> thank you very much, karlyn, and this is been an exciting election season here. i think we all pretty much agreed we have something of a sea change or significant change in this el
today going after the cia now as well as the obama administration. he painted a picture of libya in chaos, this dire situation. my colleague chuck todd played a sound clip from john mccain in july. this is how senator mccain described libya at the time. let me play it. >> i was there for their election, and you know how many people i met who had their sons or husbands, their fathers, their family members slaughtered by omgadhafi? to say libya is a failure, actually it's a great success. >> a great success in july. today some say ilgts a talking foint for republicans who want to attack the president and politicize what happens there as a result of the four deaths, tragic deaths of the americans on the front line of diplomacy. chip. >> a lot changes in foreign policy in a week, not to mention a couple of months. today i think libya is in chaos, and what we've seen is the president and administration changed on what it was. at first it was a video and then an act of terror. we know there's investigations, and that's what the question is. what exactly happened. what do we know, when
to continue to grow on coal. i think that barack obama is the best thing that happened to the republican party since jimmy carter. i just really feel, at the end of the day, people are going to wake up when they go to the polls, they're going to make the right decision. it will be mitt romney. thank you. host: moving on to elkhart, indiana. dale is on our line for independents. dale is optimistic about the economy. go ahead, dale. caller: hi. how are you? host: i'm doing fine. you say that you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: well, our economy is so big, it's just going to keep going no matter what, even though we came close to falling off of a cliff, we still rebounded no matter the negative or positive attitudes that were out there. we continue to still grow. we need to have more percentage growth. but i just feel it's just going to keep going no matter what our politicians or our big business or anybody does. host: hey, dale, what kind of business are you in? what do you do for a living? caller: i'm a quality technician for aerospace components. host: and based on the t
have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, could certainly die verge local and national media coverage, which means less visibility for those can
to barack obama. >> we both know, everyone knows he's never going do this. so what was the primary -- >> i don't know that at all. piers, i don't know that at all. i think he will do it. >> there's nothing offensive about the word "retard" applied to the president? >> why are so many journalists covering the clown campaign? mitt romney spends the final debate agreeing with much of obama's foreign policy. >> i supported that entirely and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same president the president made. i felt the same as the president did. >> i think romney's leaning obama.

, president obama uses some surprisingly coarse language to describe mitt romney. also, romney takes a paying job out of the president's double play book. and a possible real life horror story for the northeastern united states. the pieces are now falling in place for a monster weather event dubbed frankenstorm. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just a dozen days left in the race for the white house. the candidates, their campaigns are now pulling out all the stops. and so are we. our cnn correspondents are reporting from all of the most critical states in this very, very tight race as president obama and governor romney throw virtually everything in their campaign arsenals at the battleground states. let's start with the obama campaign right now. the president drew a huge crowd in richmond, virginia, today. his most recent stop on a whirlwind two-day eight-state swing that culminates next hour. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin has the latest. >> reporter: wolf, president obama is moving through his schedule at a healthy clip. he's even running early al
